Georgia’s Style

Her Style

Georgia O’Keeffe had a style that was known by many but she didn’t fit into a specific group of styles like aschan or regionalism. Living in New Mexico gave her new inspiration; she started to paint skulls of dead animals and made them look magnificent. She had a abstract way of painting her flowers, making them look so detailed. Georgia had her own kind of style. She did her own thing.

O’Keeffe’s Philosophy

She would paint her flowers large because she wanted people to pay attention to the flowers themselves and the colors, lines, shapes, and textures. She would also paint cow and or deer skulls with such beauty in the paintings.

“So I said to myself, I’ll paint what I see – what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to look at it – I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers” – Georgia O’Keeffe

“I decided that if I could¬†paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty” – Georgia O’Keeffe

“It was in the 1920’s, when nobody had time to reflect, that I saw a still-life painting with a flower that was perfectly exquisite, but so small you really could not appreciate it.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
